Tektronix P6243 Active Probe
Model Number: P6243
The P6243 Active FET probe is the high performance probing solution for 500 MHz oscilloscopes. The P6243 has a probe only bandwidth of 1 GHz and will provide a 500 MHz system bandwidth when used with the full line of Tektronix 500 MHz oscilloscopes. In addition, the P6243 is powered by the TEKPROBE BNC interface, eliminating the need for additional power supplies and cables when used with TEKPROBE BNC oscilloscopes. The P6243 offers superior signal acquisition on surface mount devices compared to the much higher capacitive loading of passive probes. The P6243 has ≤1 pF capacitive loading, which allows it to measure high speed signals without affecting the signal or device under test. Furthermore, the included accessories and adapters allow for easy attachment to SMDs. The P6245 and P6243 Active probes provide the electrical and mechanical performance required for the digital systems designs of today. No additional power supplies or cables are required when used with TEKPROBE BNC oscilloscopes. Both the P6245 and P6243 achieve high-speed signal acquisition and low circuit loading, required for solving problems faced by designers today. The small compact probe head and versatile attachment accessories allow direct connection to the device under test. The P6245 and P6243 Active Probes provide scope bandwidth at the probe tip for the TDS500 / 600 / 700, and the P6243 provides scope bandwidth at the probe tip for the TDS3000 Series scope up to 1 GHz bandwidth.
